Golf Tip – Good Bunker Shots

November 2, 2015 Posted by Matt

good bunker shotsTo hit good bunker shots you need to rotate your shoulders.  Many players dump their green-side bunker shots back into the sand because they lack speed in cutting through the sand under the ball.  Swinging with your arms and hands will not allow you to propel the ball up and out consistently.  When you have a bunker shot, turn your shoulders to 90 degrees on the backswing so you can generate power for the club head to fire through the sand.  When you swing with force, you will cause the sand to lift the ball up and create spin to stop it on the green.  Practice making aggressive bunker swings with a good shoulder turn and you will make good bunker shots.
